Green Hills Software Announces INTEGRITY Solutions for the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC

Green Hills Software announced the immediate availability of the safe and secure INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS) and supporting products/services portfolio for Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC from Xilinx. The combined platform brings the software programmability of a 64-bit processor and the hardware programmability of an FPGA to the trusted INTEGRITY run-time foundation for customers creating compute-intensive applications for automotive intelligence, industrial vision and defense. Green Hills Software pioneered 64-bit safe and secure computing for the embedded industry, and continues to expand coverage for embedded processors, including SoCs coupled with FPGA. INTEGRITY enables software teams to safely and securely run software of different levels of criticality on the same processor while guaranteeing software tasks the system resources they need. The wide-ranging benefits include safe consolidation of multiple processors and accelerators, less expensive bill of materials, faster time-to-certification and trusted run-time determinism. The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC is an innovative combination of Arm 64-bit cores and FPGA fabric, enabling the software programmability of a processor with hardware programmability of an FPGA, yielding high system performance, flexibility and scalability when compared to SoC-only designs. The UltraScale+ MPSoC combines quad 64-bit Arm Cortex®-A53 cores and dual Cortex-R5 cores, GPU, power management, lock-step mode, H.265/H.264 video encode/decode and a wide gamut of high-speed communication peripherals. Starting with base support for Xilinx's reference platform, customers have a comprehensive set of Green Hills capabilities to build from for their custom products based on the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC: INTEGRITY RTOS, the gold standard run-time foundation for safety/security critical software in industrial, avionics, medical, automotive and railway. Performance-focused support for the Arm 64-bit Cortex-A53 cores leverages NEON SIMD and hardware virtualization. As an optional future feature, the INTEGRITY Multivisor™ secure virtualization extension safely runs guest operating systems such as Linux and Android alongside real-time critical applications requiring safety and security, assuring freedom from interference with native speed performance and inter-process communication. MULTI® 64-bit IDE and debugger, record-setting Green Hills C/C++ Optimizing Compilers and 64-bit toolchain, profiler and many other integrated time-saving tools. Integrated code quality tools including MISRA C/C++ code quality adherence checker and DoubleCheck™ static analyzer. Multicore run-control, board bring-up, low-level debugging and real-time trace debugging with the Green HiIls Probe and SuperTrace™ Probe utilizing industry-standard CoreSight™ from Arm. Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit with FIPS 140-2 compliant services that secure embedded devices through secure boot, secure data storage, secure networks (SSL, TSL, IPSec, SSH) and digitally signed secure OTA firmware updates. Cloud-based Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) manages secure credentials throughout the manufacturing supply chain, even over untrusted networks. Proven partner ecosystem spanning graphics, networking, connectivity, encryption, application modeling and all aspects of embedded device development and deployment. Services for safety/security certifications, system performance and programmer productivity. Availability: The INTEGRITY RTOS and comprehensive MULTI development environment for the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC are available.

Green Hills Software Delivers the Most Advanced Compiler for Embedded and Iot Processors, C and C++ compilers, version 2017.5

Green Hills Software announced its latest Optimizing C and C++ compilers, version 2017.5, for the 32-bit and 64-bit embedded processor architectures, including Arm®, Intel® and Power Architecture®. Highlights include unique C/C++ functional safety certification, up to 30% higher performance, and more compatibility with third-party tools. At the heart of unlocking a processor core's capabilities, the compilers, tool chain and associated MULTI® integrated development environment (IDE), continue their 35-year heritage as the premium code generation standard trusted by thousands of global companies creating critical software systems requiring the higher processor execution speed and smallest code size within the shortest software development time. The C/C++ Compilers 2017.5 are already in heavy use by global companies' software-critical devices and systems in automotive, aerospace, storage, medical, military, industrial and personal communication markets, to name a few. Optimized Performance: Over its 35-year history, Green Hills Optimizing Compilers have implemented both general-purpose compiler optimizations and CPU-specific optimizations to enable C and C++ developers to extract the most from purpose-built features of 37 processor architectures. Compiler 2017.5 supports the embedded architectures including Arm, Intel, Power Architecture, Renesas RH850, MIPS, ColdFire and TriCore™, delivering the higher performance to date: Maximum performance 16-50% higher as measured over hundreds of industry and customer benchmarks, besting results from GNU and LLVM compilers, New support keeping pace with the latest architecture extensions for Armv8-A, Armv8-R and Armv8-M, including new security instructions, Improved control and utilization of CPU pipeline architectures, floating point optimizations and opcode utilization, and Enhanced control for auto-vectorization of SIMD instruction extensions including Arm NEON and Intel Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE). Processor manufacturers have chosen Green Hills compilers more than all other competing compilers when publishing their higher performance scores on their processors using EEMBC® Processor Benchmarks – the industry standard benchmarks for embedded systems. Certified Safety and Reliability: Life-critical software is assuming more and more control of embedded and IoT devices that fly aircraft, brake a car, control surgical robots or manage hard disk drives. Development teams rely on a C/C++ compiler that produces machine code with the utmost quality, rigorously developed and meticulously tested in an accredited software process environment. Green Hills C/C++ Optimizing Compilers 2017.5 are certified as qualified tools at the higher levels of functional safety for automotive (ISO 26262 ASIL D), industrial (IEC 61508 SIL 3) and railway (EN 50128 SWSIL 4). In addition, the integrated single-pass MISRA-C adherence checker gives development teams a flexible means to prevent new bugs and enforce cleaner, higher-quality code. Green Hills compilers are also tightly integrated into the DoubleCheck™ static analysis tool that performs full program analysis in a single pass, finding bugs caused by complex interactions between pieces of code across many source files. Compatibility and Productivity: The software development phase is often the most costly portion of developing an embedded system or IoT product. C/C++ Compilers 2017.5 add new features and under-the-hood technology that can ultimately decrease time-to-market and time-to-volume: As the popularity of third party tools that automatically generate code grows, Green Hills compilers have greatly expanded its maximum number of user sections and internal number of variables, Greater compatibility and flexibility when linking with third-party code through the Arm Application Binary Interface (ABI), Enhanced visibility for third-party libraries to detect vector optimizations in use, and Enhanced support for various C++ language constructs. Availability: Green Hills C/C++ Optimizing Compiler 2017.5 is available for Arm, Intel, Power Architecture, Renesas RH850, TriCore, MIPS and ColdFire architectures.
